ABOUT P67-million worth of security screening equipment procured by the Office for Transportation Security (OTS) for the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) and other airports around the country last year appears to have disappeared.

 

In 2015, the OTS—a Department of Transportation and Communications-attached agency—bought eight full-body scanners for P48 million and eight electromagnetic analyzers (EMA) or bottled liquid scanners for P19.2 million from Singapore.

 

The state of the art equipment were to beef up security at the Naia terminals and the Mactan-Cebu and Davao international airports but not one of the screening machines was installed.

 

The old full body scanners currently at the Naia—which are reportedly hardly used—were bought earlier by the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) from Germany.

 

In February last year, the OTS bought eight full body scanners at a cost of P6 million each.

Maybe time for a lifestyle check on a few officials :idontknow:
